Cheek fillers are injections that can help to increase the volume of the area above and around the cheekbones, providing the illusion of a more defined bone structure. By injecting volume under the skin layer, cheek fillers can also smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal filler is an FDA-approved injectable that helps to improve symmetry, create volume or dimension, and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. The cheek areas include the lower edge of the eye socket, the nasolabial folds, and a line that extends from the corner of the mouth to the ear canal.
Filler injected anywhere in this area is considered cheek filler. Cheek fillers are injections into the cheekbone area that can restore lost volume or more clearly define facial bone structure. Biostimulators are another category of dermal fillers that can be used on the cheekbone to improve projection. While not as common as hyaluronic acid fillers, they are irreversible and require several sessions to see results, their results last longer than their HA-based counterparts.
Cheek-lifting fillers will restore balance and harmony to your face by giving definition to your cheeks. If you notice signs of aging due to the loss of volume in your cheeks or want to improve facial symmetry, you could be an ideal candidate for filling your cheeks. People who have flat, drooping, or sunken cheeks will also benefit greatly from a cheek lift treatment. Good candidates for a dermal-filled cheek lift are those patients who want to contour their cheeks with greater definition.
Liotta prefers Juvéderm Voluma, which she calls the gold standard for cheek enhancement, believing it to be the thickest, most reproducible, long-lasting and natural-looking filler for the cheek.
